Logo 'European Research Centre for Book and Paper Conservation-Restoration'

Op 17 en 18 november 2012 organiseert het 'European Research Centre for Book and Paper Conservation-Restoration' te Horn in Oostenrijk een tweedaagse cursus over perkamenten handschriften. De cursus is bedoeld voor boekrestauratoren, restauratoren in opleiding en onderzoekers van middeleeuwse boekbanden.

Archaeological approach to manuscripts has become an important matter during conservation treatments, especially when we are dealing with parchment codices and historical bookbindings full of macroscopic evidences sometimes described as deterioration.
Production and reception marks are valuable contribution to build documents uniqueness, to complement manuscripts studies and to promote future disclosures and material preservation.
